I hope you have kept safe and well during our latest lockdown due to the Covid-19 virus. It looks like our restricted lives are at last being relaxed a little as the Government sets out its plans to bring us out of lock down. With this relaxation comes the news that the Mobile Library is being scheduled to re-start on Tuesday 13th April 2021. Please be aware that this could be subject to change given any changes to Government plans, or a surge in the number of covid cases in Somerset.
In addition, we are allowing browsing for your own books on board the vehicle, there will be no need to pre-order your books or for me to choose books for you straight from the shelves, you will be able to do this yourself!
However, we are not out of the woods yet. There will be some restrictions that will need to be maintained:
If you have reservations about coming on board the vehicle, then I can still take books off the shelves for you and issue them. It’s not a problem. I will continue to support you.
With these restrictions in place coupled with your continued patience and co-operation during this pandemic, I’m sure we will be able to provide the safest environment for us all. And, as the vaccine programme extends through the age groups, we shall see a greater lifting of these restrictions, with the aim of normality somewhere in the future, if the infection numbers are with us!!
I have attached the schedule we shall be operating. It is the same schedule issued at the end of last year, but sent again, just in case.
Unless you hear from me again, then I look forward to seeing you sometime very soon. In the meantime, continue to stay safe and well and a very happy Easter!!
